Updated May 04, 2020

Sustainability is a core focus of many restaurants across the country, and some of the most committed are certified as ocean-friendly by the Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to the protection of the world's ocean, waves, and beaches. Those restaurants must meet strict criteria, ranging from using proper recycling methods to eliminating plastic bags, straws, and utensils. Read on for which OpenTable restaurants are a part of the ocean-friendly program and still open for takeout and delivery.

About the restaurant
During these trying times, we are trying to adjust our service so that customers feel safe but still have a great Ki's experience. Daytime service is as it always has been: order at the counter and the food will be brought to you in the seating area we have created outside under the tents. Night-time is full service. Sunday through Thursday is upstairs. The tables are spaced far apart and there is an option of being out on the front deck for parties of two. On Friday and Saturday, we will be offering full service in both seating areas of upstairs and under the tents outside.
Ki's is a perfect fit for its local beach community culture. We provide food options that serve the needs of people who enjoy the outdoors and have a high degree of awareness for their health, fitness and well being. And Ki's is more than just a 'health food' option for many. It is simply great food for anyone-professionals, families looking for a home-cooked meal or friends hanging out enjoying some tasty eats.

The focal point in Oceana Coastal Kitchen's main dining room is an impressive 800-gallon aquarium, while a sliding window fully opens to showcase unobstructed views of Mission Bay.

Oceana Coastal Kitchen offers an al fresco experience for guests, complete with sleek booths and tables with sweeping panoramic waterfront views. Led by Executive Chef Paul Arias, favorite menu items include the Oceana House Roll, the Harris Ranch Ribeye, and the Striped Seabass.

We welcome you to visit Andrei's Conscious Cuisine & Cocktails for a truly special dining experience.

I absolutely love dining here. The tables are so nicely spaced out (a rare thing in the OC), the noise level allows you to have a conversation, the menu is great and varied and the service is very good and polite. Free valet for weekday lunch and validated parking for the rest. Honestly, I couldn’t recommend this place anymore!

About the restaurant
With its spectacular waterfront setting, nautical-inspired design, and new menu of mouthwatering dishes by new Executive Chef Bryan Stuppy, Dockside 1953 is poised to become a favorite restaurant of hotel guests and locals alike. Aptly named for its marina-facing, bayfront locale at the Bahia Resort Hotel and the year that the resort opened, Dockside 1953 is a stunning standout sure to invigorate San Diego’s dining scene. Fresh, coastal-inspired, and locally sourced -- our eclectic menu of California fare features dishes to satisfy all palates. With a dedication to high-quality ingredients, menu highlights include butterscotch banana French toast and chilaquiles for breakfast, rockfish ceviche’ and a selection of flatbreads for lunch, pan-seared seabass and steak frites au poivre for dinner, and a thoughtful wine and cocktail menu. The extensive outdoor patio features cozy fire pits, gorgeous marina views, and a covered trellis to comfortably shade guests from the sun and rain.

My family and I dined inside the Dockside 1953. The menu is amazing. We shared the seafood tower, along with some inspirational house cocktails that was delicious. Everyone shared each other’s entrees because they all were very enticing. Restaurant tip: make reservations early to dine out on the patio. Some tables have fire pits that add to the ambiance.

About the restaurant
2022 James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef Northwest & Pacific.

Rooted in the local farm-to-table movement — a place where seasonality and culinary tradition are celebrated in tandem. One part Hawaii and one part Brooklyn. The atmosphere shares a brasserie feel with a laid-back island sensibility—a celebration and homage to all of our favorite things we enjoy eating and drinking.

Crafted with brick & reclaimed wood, our urban Hawaiian farmhouse features an open kitchen, lush plant wall, brick walls, and lots of natural light in a historic Chinatown building. The bar mixes classic and modern cocktails with artisanal flare with a well-curated wine list.

Unexpected little gem. You enter from the parking lot out back, which leads to very low expectations. That changes as soon as you get in the door, where everyone is very welcoming. Decor is beachside funky. We both had the 3 course special dinner, a bargain for salad (choice of house which was field greens with tiny diced mango, walnuts, tomato and tasty vinaigrette or Caesar), mahi mahi (choice of preparations) and dessert. We both tried a house special preparation of the mahi, onion crusted with a bacon citrus dressing. Sounds odd, absolutely delicious! Fried spinach which is also unusual and very tasty and creamy mashed potatoes accompanied the fish. Dessert was creamy key lime pie. Service by Yanni was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return when we are back in town.

Amazing bone-in ribeye, No vegetables with our entree, mashed potatoes were bland and runny, ambiance was mediocre, did not do much to hide that it was a hotel restaurant. Did I say the bone-in ribeye was amazing.

Been a foodie for 30 years and was unexpectedly blown away at the quality of this experience. Loved it all: ambience, service, friendliness of everyone, and the food. The halibut was perfect, golden crispy outside and moist, flaky inside, and the bed of creamy cauliflower, spinach and chanterelles was full of flavor. New England chowder was the best I’ve ever had, including several from the East Coast. Hearty but not too thick, not overcooked, nice chunks of celery, onion and potatoes, with a rich, full flavor across the palate. Highly recommend without hesitation.

Everything at the Zinc Shade is outstanding. However, for the Mother's Day buffet, $95 is a bit high. Would recommend having it at $75/person. That's the only complaint.
